Gigabyte X99 Gaming G1 WiFi (LGA 2011-3) Motherboard Review
     Sun, Dec 14 2014 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A trend that is observable with higher end “gaming” motherboards is that they tend to be geared primarily towards performance junkies, overclockers and all-round enthusiasts, rather than just pure gamers. Gaming motherboards based on Intel’s X99 chipset are a perfect example of this because the reality is that most gamers would get a better deal by opting for a Z97 motherboard and a Core i7 4790K. As a result a gaming X99 motherboard appeals to a specific type of gamer who has the need for a large amount of CPU horsepower and memory to assist with things like video editing, rendering and streaming. Today we have Gigabyte’s G1 Gaming WiFi motherboard which takes Gigabyte’s “gaming” feature-set of upgraded quality audio and Killer networking and pairs that up with the performance of the X99 platform and various tools for overclockers such as voltage read-off points and onboard buttons. There’s also a shed-load of connectivity such as dual-LAN, AC WiFi, SATA Express, M.2 and more USB ports than you can shake a stick at. In basic terms, the Gaming G1 WiFi is Gigabyte’s flagship motherboard for the X99 Gaming series, but the reality is that any Gigabyte X99 motherboard is going to be “high-end enough” for you to be contented.

Asus Maximus VII Impact @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Dec 12 2014 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to Mini-ITX motherboards people are going to have a wide range of feature requirements. For some, as long as it supports their CPU and it has a x16 PCIe slot they are good to go. Others want to have a lot of the features they would find in their full sized builds including wireless AC, different storage connection options, and even upgraded audio. Personally I have been on both sides. When I’m building a budget Mini-ITX build I can skip out on the features but when I’m building a crazy LAN rig like the build we put in the In Win D-Frame Mini only the best will do. Asus continues to impress me with their drive to pack anything and everything into their Impact boards. Well today I’m going to take a look at the latest one, the Maximus VII Impact. This is officially the second Impact board, based on the Z97 chipset. Is this the perfect LAN rig motherboard? Let’s find out.

MSI B85M ECO Micro ATX Motherboard Review @HiTech Legion

Posted by: STAFF
Components are becoming more efficient, yet still being able to outperform their predecessors. An excellent example of an extremely efficient ECO product is the MSI B85M ECO Micro ATX motherboard. ECO, oh great that means I am going to lose performance; not with the MSI B85M ECO Micro ATX Motherboard."

ECS Z97I-DRONE Mini-ITX Motherboard Review @ Madshrimps
     Mon, Dec 08 2014 | 12:46P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ECS does not disappoint with the release of the cheap ECS Z97I-Drone which allows installation of a powerful Haswell processor which can be paired with RAM up to 16GB and eventually a potent VGA card inside the provided PCI Express x16 slot; be warned however that using a beefy CPU cooler will likely cover the PCI-Express slot completely so we would recommend either sticking with the stock Intel cooler or adopting an all-in-one water cooling solution, which is so accessible these days."

ASRock X99 Extreme6 (LGA 2011-3) Motherboard Review
     Sun, Dec 07 2014 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
During Intel’s X99 launch in early September one motherboard vendor was noticeably absent from the scene – ASRock. While we’re not sure as to the exact reason for ASRock’s delayed entry, they are now out in full force with an extensive top-to-bottom X99 product stack. Their range of products for Intel’s High-End Desktop (HEDT) platform span the usual three product segmentations: the OC, Fatal1ty and Extreme series. Whichever ASRock motherboard series consumers choose they will be greeted with a very high-end system due to the nature of Intel ‘s X99 chipset and Haswell-E processors. However, each series has been tailored for a specific type of user. The OC series, themed black and yellow, targets the performance junkie and enthusiastic overclocker with beefed up power phases and handy overclocking tools and buttons. The Fatal1ty series, themed black and red, targets gamers with improved quality audio hardware and Killer networking. The Extreme series, themed black and blue, is umbrella group within which today’s motherboard rests. The Extreme series doesn’t target any particular type of user: it is ASRock’s solid all-round motherboard. Consumers struggling to grapple with what that means in practice should equate the ASRock Extreme series to ASUS’s Channel series, Gigabyte’s Ultra Durable series and MSI’s Classic series. On the test bench today is ASRock’s X99 Extreme6 which sits above the X99 Extreme3, X99 Extreme4 and X99M Extreme4 but below the X99 Extreme6/ac, X99 WS and X99 Extreme11.

For a year now I have been using the original Asrock M8 as my Steam PC with a Core i5-4670K and GeForce GTX 760 combo. As good as it has been, I am looking forward to replacing it with the new and improved M8 Z97-600W which will allow me to take advantage of higher-end graphics cards.

ASUS Maximus VII Impact motherboard
     Sat, Dec 06 2014 | 4:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"ASUS again proves the strength of their ROG designs with the Maximus VII Impact board. The board may have a small status, but its got the heart of a champion. ASUS designed the board's layout masterfully, providing sufficient space between all integrated peripherals while maintaining a rich feature set with the board. They were able to do this by relocating the CPU power circuitry on to an upright board to the right of the CPU socket, some of the enthusiast functions, like the debug LED and buttons, to an upright integrated into the rear panel, as well as the inclusion of several PCIe add-in cards."

ASUS Z97-Pro Gamer Review
     Sat, Dec 06 2014 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With Z97-Pro Gamer, ASUS is offering a motherboard that's basically being positioned below their ROG series products. Therefore this is ASUS's entry-level gaming motherboard, which should come with an interesting feature mix as well as a reasonable price. We're very curious to find out how this board performs, also when compared to the more expensive ROG series motherboards.

motherboard players to focus on gross margins in 2015

Posted by: STAFF
Asustek Computer has been aggressively cutting motherboard prices to defend its leading position in the market recently and is likely to use the same strategy for 2015. In response most competing motherboard players have turned to focus on maintaining their gross margins for 2015, according to industry sources.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
